Lake House wins Readers Choice Awards

Jul 28, 2014

A little cherry on top of the recently announced 2014 Australian Gourmet Traveller Hotel Guide..... Lake House have also been voted by the readers of Australian Gourmet Traveller as their top choice for:

Australia’s Best Regional Hotel & Australia’s Best Hotel Restaurant

The inaugural Hotel Guide was launched in June, featuring Australia’s 50 finest hotels. Gourmet Traveller then invited readers to vote in 5 categories including Australia’s Best Regional Hotel and Australia’s Best Hotel Restaurant – nominating Lake House as their favourite in both categories.

The crew at Lake House are celebrating 30 years at the iconic property. In 1984 Alla & Allan Wolf Tasker, dreaming a seemingly impossible dream, opened the doors of Lake House in Daylesford (80 mins from Melbourne). Thirty years later, they, their daughter Larissa and a dedicated “tribe” of industry professionals continue to spread joy and pleasure with their unique and timeless sense of hospitality.

For many, Lake House evokes nostalgic memories of milestones in their own lives, of long lunches, weekend escapes and great parties.... For others, Lake House is a benchmark in a world where service and true hospitality have become ever diminishing commodities After 30 years; there is much to celebrate!

“It has taken more than 30 years of tireless enthusiasm and meticulous attention, but Alla and Allan Wolf-Tasker have created a remarkable property that sets the standard for regional hotels in Australia. Take a beautiful setting, add sumptuous accommodation, a restaurant so good it’s a destination dining spot, a decadent spa and the sort of calm, considerate service that makes every guest feel special, and you have Lake House.”

The Australian Gourmet Traveller 2014 Australian Hotel Guide

The creation of Lake House is a story that ignites passion and excitement. From humble beginnings through all sorts of challenges; Lake House has not only grown and thrived but continues to receive state, national and international awards and accolades with its unrivalled 30 years of consistency & excellence..

At the helm is Culinary Director Alla Wolf-Tasker AM, who apart from her responsibilities at Lake House, is also well known for her passion and advocacy on behalf of the Australian food and wine industry. Active within the areas of Culinary Tourism, the promotion of good food and sustainable agriculture and serving on many boards and committees, Alla is a sought after speaker and participant in various international festivals and events. As recently as November 2013 she cooked at James Beard House in NYC for the opening event of Tourism Australia’s “Restaurant Australia” program. In 2014 she is a key speaker at the prestigious International Design Week in Melbourne and has just been appointed on the board of Luxury Lodges of Australia.
